COVID-19 RESPONSE

Our aim is to honour and respect our veterans while keeping their families safe.

Thank you

Our warmest thanks to all those who chose to watch our ceremony live-streamed on YouTube. We also thank the many participants who attended the ceremony, maintaining social distancing and wearing masks. Our thanks too to those of you who could not attend due to illness, or legal prohibition, your presence was still felt, and appreciated.

Our deep thanks also to the crew of audio and video experts who put together the live-stream video and audio in such a professional manner.

THE BC MINISTRY OF HEALTH APPROVED OUR PLAN FOR THIS YEAR'S CEREMONY

When it became clear that Covid-19 was going to create a problem for our Ceremonies in 2020, we devised a plan which we submitted to the BC Ministry of Health. Our proposal was ambitious. We covered everything we could think of. We hung on every word and decision made by Dr. Bonnie Henry and adjusted everything we could.  We asked if 100 people could attend - it was daring since almost every other event was capped at 50 people, or cancelled.

The BC Ministry said 'YES'.

We're proud of this accomplishment as it means that there has not been a break in the North Shore ceremonies since we took over the planning in 1947!
